Climate Change in the Arctic - A Polar Explorer’s Perspective

Date:Wednesday, December 2, 2015
Time:7:00 PM
Presented by:River Prairie Group
Leader:Moira Noll - 630-469-1606 moiradowell@aol.com
Location:Glen Ellyn Civic Center, 535 Duane Street, Glen Ellyn, IL

Be sure to put DECEMBER 2 on your calendar for a special presentation from Glen Ellyn native, John Huston. 
A veteran of the first American expedition to reach the North Pole unsupported, John speaks with a passion challenging and inspiring others to believe in their potential to meet their goals.   John has also completed major expeditions to the South Pole, on Greenland, and on Ellesmere Island.  
This presentation takes you to the frontlines of climate change, the Arctic. John’s stories from the North Pole and the Canadian Arctic demonstrate how climate change is affecting the polar regions. Without a significant reduction in atmospheric carbon levels, there may not be enough ice to ski to the North Pole in the near future. This presentation is about melting ice and the beautiful Arctic, but it is also about working together to make forward-thinking choices.  
Plan to join us for an evening of stunning photographs and motivational stories.  As an added bonus, John’s book will be available as the perfect holiday gift for adventurers in your family.  He has offered to give personalize signatures as well. 
Our meeting will be the Glen Ellyn Civic Center, December 2, 2015 at 7 pm, Sponsored by the River Prairie Group.  (As posted on the RPG's web page)
